Does anyone here know for sure if Grass B Gone is safe to use in Daylilies?

I thought "yes". My son says but daylilies look like grass, to which I reply, but they aren't grass.

They are a bit expensive so I want to be sure before I spray the flower bed. I'm going to be really upset if I kill my daylilies.

It'll kill them. Or at least damage them.

While there are broadleaf weed killers that don't kill grass, there are no chemical grass killers that don't harm other plants. I have researched this.

And this, boys and girls, is why you put real edging around your flower beds. The only thing you can safely use to remove grass in flower beds is a hoe.

Yep. I weed my daylily beds by hand, using hand tools as needed. My back does not always thank me for that.

Be VERY careful with this product around your pets. Pets with compromised immune systems or aged, Grass B gon can be lethal. Especially if it's still wet and they lick it.

I take it that they are evergreen daylillies? I wish I had chosen all daylillies that die back every winter. My Stella D’Oros die back, and I have a window of time in early spring when I can hit the bed with Roundup, before the daylillies peek through.

My evergreen rebloomers are a pain to weed. Once you are finished weeding, Preen helps keep some weeds at bay as long as you aren’t planning to plants seeds there.
